The Netherlands. Parents Conference
18TH — 21TH OF SEPTEMBER 1997
There were approximately 80 persons from all over Europe. Also from Africa and Canada. The programme was quite full. We had lectures about the big variety of deafblindness. Video films were shown. There was a programme for deafblind youngsters about how to find a job. Some advice for the next conference: longer coffee brakes, more PR. The atmosphere was very emotional.
The end of the conference should be the start of the new subject: the first circle aound a deafblind person.
